Sound effects. 1-Up sound whenever you score. Waluigi "NGHAAAA" whenever you block.
8bit nintendo jingles as the stadium music cues

edit: amiibo voltron - tap amiibo of character voiced by Charles Martinet and the announcer becomes him in the style of that character! :D (way too elaborate but I love the dumb idea)

I bet it's something stupid like "save your favourite player on an amiibo and take that to a friend to play.

Is there a story mode in this game? That would fit. Take your character anywhere.

realistically, they're not creating animated characters for every even just Mario-line amiibo. it's fun to joke about but it's not happening. you'll get clothes and stuff.

I want you to be able to create your own Nintendo team. If you have 5 Mario Amiibo you can scan them in and create a Nintendo roster of players.
everyone is Mario tho

Yeah, this instantly made me think of NBA Street V3 on GameCube.

Seems that 2K is actually putting some effort into this version of the game so that's cool.
you're not getting characters.

2k sees no money from amiibo, why would they waste so many resources on player characters. it's completely unrealistic.

I'm not expecting full characters. It simply reminds me of NBA Street V3 due to this seemingly being a cross over of Nintendo and NBA in some way. I'm expecting jerseys and/or shoes.

Might even get me interested in a basketball game.




To entice Nintendo fans to buy it on a Nintendo console perhaps.
Honestly - not a sports game fan, but have 99% of all amiibo released so far - and this would incentivise me to buy if the benefits were cool
